Chuck Ford

Litigation Lawyer

Chuck spent most of his career defending claims for large companies, insurance companies, banks and hospitals as a Partner at a large regional law firm. He reached a crossroad in his career when he turned 40. He had spent his entire adult life advocating for people who needed help, while his professional life was consumed by representing institutions who defended claims brought by those same people. With the support of his family, he decided to dedicate the rest of his career to helping people, instead of institutions.

Chuck’s practice is focused on plaintiff-side tort/accident claims, disputes involving disability benefits, life insurance benefits, sexual assault/abuse claims, institutional abuse claims, mass tort, class action litigation, and professional negligence claims.

All of Chuck’s work comes from referrals in the legal, insurance and business communities. He has collaborated with lawyers from other firms throughout his career, and he continues to do so.

Chuck brings a unique perspective to plaintiff-side claims given that he often acted for the opposing party/insurer in a former life.

He is a well-respected litigator who believes that the best way to obtain fair outcomes is to prepare as though every case is going to trial. He is rated by Best Lawyers in Canada (Insurance since 2012, Personal Injury since 2014). He has been recognized by the Canadian Lexpert Directory as a leading practitioner in Personal Injury Litigation (Represents Plaintiffs) since 2015. Chuck was recognized by Benchmark Canada as a New Litigation Star by Benchmark Canada (2015 Ed.).
